Lumos and Nox - Harry Potter Light Switch

While I have 800 projects in the works right now, it really seems like I'm trending with the Harry Potter themed items for you. This time, a Harry Potter light switch. Yeah, I'm out of control for the upcoming birth of my new niece or nephew, and my geek tendencies are showing.  I've seen many variations of this project on Pinterest, so I knew it would be an easy but cute addition to the nursery. I used my trusty Silhouette to set up the text for the project. Applying vinyl using transfer … [Read more...]

i lost my mind – disney wine & dine half marathon

Source -

This is the bottle cap inspired cake that was made with some of the snacks in the background. I'm thankful I was not trusted to make the cake. I made the … [Read more...]

beer tasting party – ideas

I have a dear friend who has made me her party planner. She is very sneaky. She'll ask me for my opinion on something and gets me hooked on the idea. Before I know it, I'm making all sorts of things before I have even realized what is happening. Baby shower? Done. First birthday party for her son? Done. Wedding? I have a list of to-dos to last me until their November wedding date. And yes, they did things backwards. She even told the priest I was her wedding planner before telling me! She's … [Read more...]
